German Bombers Over London

The Mill Tavern; December 1940

Old Tom: It were nasty last night Fred, Kent and the Channel ports all the way to Plymouth copped it.

Old Fred: Aye, right nasty. Looks like Birmingham's in for it today. Lord when will it ever stop?

Old Tom: Garage is low on fuel again, and there's no bread in the shops.

Old Fred: Aye, right you are there Tom, there's no one driving on the roads tha' night.

Old Tom: Evacuated the schools too. Still the Missus stocked up with tinned food and candles before it started so we'll see our way through all right......

Old Fred: Long as there's beer in the barrel Tom, we'll be just fine.

Old Tom: Oh lumme....... not the beer, please.........
